FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Green Spa Network, Earth Day Campaign
Monday, April 01, 2019 — We can all do #JustOneThing to help save the planet, and there’s no better time than Earth Day (April 22)! That’s why the Green Spa Network (GSN), a nonprofit trade association supporting sustainability in the spa and wellness industry, is launching its Earth Day campaign, and encouraging everyone to join us and share earth-saving tips together!
For the month of April 2019, the Green Spa Network is dedicated to promoting sustainable acts by using the hashtag #JustOneThing. We will be sharing tips that anyone can incorporate in their everyday practices to support change and help improve the health of the planet. GSN employees and industry leaders have been asked to answer the question “What Does Earth Day Mean To Me?,” as well as provide a #JustOneThing tip to share with the GSN community.
When asked, “What does Earth Day mean to me?,” Rona Berg, Editorial Director of Organic Spa Magazine says, “Earth Day is a reminder of how fragile this planet has become. On Earth Day, when I breathe in fresh air, enjoy a walk in the park and feel the sun on my face, I renew my commitment to fight pollution and climate change.”
Here’s her #Justonething tip: “Say no to plastic straws, and talk to your kids about why it’s so important.” What’s yours? Please hashtag #JustOneThing and join the conversation!
GSN is proud to announce the re-launch of the Action Initiative, the GSN Tree Planting Initiative, in partnership with WeForest, to mobilize the spa and wellness industry to plant 1 million trees. Thanks to the support of the vital community a total of 72,383 trees have been planted. This effort is premised on the critical and urgent need to regenerate the earth using trees natural abilities to reverse climate change.
